February 2011 Community Meeting

posted Feb 4, 2011, 9:24 AM by Reid Serozi   [ updated Feb 4, 2011, 9:36 AM ]

Hi Neighbors, 

Do you walk your dog, or run, or walk for exercise, or just to get there from here? Are you concerned about pedestrian safety? Do you wonder what's going on (or not going on) with the business strip between Boundary and Franklin? Are you curious about businesses; soon-to be, new, or established in our neighborhood? What about this City Farm we've been hearing about? 
Would you like an update on any crime in the area? And what's up with the new Mordecai Park Interpretive Center? 

Almost all of these issues will be addressed at the next CAC meeting Tuesday February 8th, 7:30-8:45 pm at the Methodist church on the corner of Bloodworth and Sasser. We meet in a room on the bottom floor by the small parking lot on Sasser. 

It doesn't matter if you rent or own, if you live in or near the Mordecai CAC boundary you are welcome to attend. There is no requirement to become involved, if you just want to hear about what's going on that's fine. 

Here is a link to the February meeting agenda

I hope to see new faces on Tuesday,
